Fred M Link of the Fred M. Link Co. 1931 – 1950 is known as the pioneer of VHF FM police communications
Answer is Yes… Link received the IEEE Centennial Medal in 1984. An IEEE milestone plaque at the entrance of the Connecticut Department of Public Safety headquarters in Middletown, Conn., commemorates the installation of the first FM police radio communications system, which was built by Link Radio. It was the success of this system that led to adopting FM radio for communications by the Mechanized Cavalry (tanks) based in Fort Monmouth, N.J., used in World War II.
